Size - Scoot Boot
We believe the first step to success with selling Scoot Boots is knowing the product and understanding its application. We recognise our Stockists as an integral part of our business in providing an invaluable face to face service to our customers. Nothing beats the accuracy of sizing with our sizing shells. We do our best with our remote sizing services to get the fit right 100% of the time. Sadly nothing in life is perfect. Our sizing chart is as close to accurate as we can get, unfortunately, the hooves on the smallest and largest size of the spectrum are the trickiest for us to hone down. We highly recommend only sizing the mini’s and the largest horses with sizing shells over the chart alone. If you can not get to your customer and need to size through photos only, it is always a great idea to keep communication open with your customer and follow up with fitting photos. Share this video with your customers to help their understanding of the process.
How to use sizing shells
When requesting a client to send in pictures for sizing, it's important to ask them for a front and side view. This will help you evaluate if the hooves look suitable to suit Scoot Boots.
In total you should request four photos of each hoof, two for suitability and two sizing photos.
1st Suitability photo
Hold the camera low to the ground. This side view will allow you to evaluate the shape of the heel and heel bulbs.
2nd Suitability photo
Hold the camera low to the ground. This front view will allow you to evaluate the shape of the hoof wall.
Check the size by requesting clear photos of the hoof with measuring tape.
Start at the tip of the toe. The correct measurement is taken at the heel buttress. 120mm or 4 3/4" in this example.
Place your tape measure across the widest part of the hoof. 120mm or 4 3/4" in this example. (This hoof shape would indicate a Scoot Slim)
Measure to the heel buttress only, and not to where the hoof contacts the skin.

Unsuitable hooves for Scoot Boots
High heel & Under Run
Upright/ High heels
Upright hooves are unsuitable for Scoot Boots, as the high bulbs do not suit the Scoot design.
High heels do not suit the Scoot design either. A good indicator for unsuitability is a ground parallel hairline.
